So as it ended up, the RunDisney people made the right call yesterday. The weather was indeed a bit stormy this morning, with lightning and rain. Of course, some people still were angry that the race wasn’t held – whatever dudes!

We got emails about what RunDisney was going to do for those who were supposed to do the half marathon today. If you had only registered for the half, you could go to WWOS and get your medal and two one-day park tickets or a gift card or a deferment to a future race. I chose the tickets (and of course the medal). Since Molly is doing the Dopey, she got a gift card.

I went to WWOS to pick up my stuff, and they had quite the celebration going on. There were people doing caricatures, people making balloon animals, and lots of characters for photo ops. They did a great job in trying to make up for missing doing 13.1 miles.

Another fun thing today was how many runners decided to go ahead and do 13.1 miles in some way today. Molly decided to do hers on a stationary bike in the gym (mainly because all the treadmills were taken). Other people were running around their resort. At some resorts, other visitors would stand around and cheer them on, or have water stops, or even a finish line. Truly an example of the running community!

Anyhow, tomorrow is Molly’s big day – the marathon! Since I am her course support, I have to make sure she has her stuff – whatever that may be!
Blessings today include: sleeping in; all the fun things at WWOS
